DC DMV will issue a temporary contractual employee parking permit to a contractor working on a District residence in a residential parking zoned neighborhood. The contractor's vehicle must display commercial tags in the company's name. The parking permit is issued at no charge.
You must present the following original documents at a DC DMV service center:
- Valid vehicle registration; vehicle must display commercial vehicle tags
- Proof of valid vehicle insurance
- Statement from residential property owner certifying that construction, plumbing, painting, etc., is being performed on the property and estimated length of project
- Copy of residential property owner's DC DMV driver license or identification card
The permit is free of charge and valid for up to 15 days at a time. To renew the permit all information must be resubmitted.
Although the temporary parking permit contains a sticker, similar to a DC DMV registration sticker, the bottom portion of the sticker can be placed on the dashboard of the driver side of the vehicle.
